Great Divide Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti

I have had this beer before and I know it’s really good to the point that for some reason I haven’t reviewed it before. It is a limited release, so grab it while you can. I really think this may be one of the best beers ever made. It pours a dark brown with a medium off white head. The aroma is a little bitter chocolate and a slight peaty, smokiness with a little piney hops in there. The flavor is along similar lines. Very balanced. Not at all sweet. The chocolate seems to have a slight bitterness to it, but the oak also gives it a burnt wood or peat flavor a little like Scotch. It also has a mild, but noticeable hoppiness to it. I had it with tacos and it overpowered them a little. I could see this more with steak or burgers. This is literally one of my most favorite beers. I give it five out of five proper pints.
